In the Stars April 7-14…shining light on the astrology of the week

The week begins just after the New Moon, symbolizing new beginnings, especially encouraged because the New Moon was in Aries, the zodiac sign symbolizing beginnings. The Sun is exalted in Aries, or at its best. Now is the time  for spring cleaning and fresh starts. Solar Aries symbolizes passion, warmth, excitement, and zest for adventure. Mercury still remains in its shadow until April 16th. This means that although Mercury is now direct, it still carries some of the effects of Mercury retrograde until April 16th. We can expect to experience some communication and mechanical breakdowns through April 16th. So be patient with mix-ups which may be opportunities to revise, re-view, or re-configure. The South Node conjuncts Pluto, a major aspect symbolizing completions, transformations, and endings and beginnings. This week Jupiter turns retrograde on Wednesday, April 10th for a five-month backward spin. With Jupiter slowing down and changing direction, its energies are amplified. Jupiter symbolizes expansion, abundance, and blessings. When it is retrograde, the only downside may be exaggeration and excess. It is a good time to turn inward, and amplify your spiritual life.

Sunday’s major aspect, a benefic Mercury-Saturn sextile, syncs our thoughts with reality, and we can write and communicate responsibly, and judiciously. The Taurus Moon makes at least four other benefic aspects with planets, making this a day of fortuitous happenings. Taurus is an earth sign, and actions will be sensual and grounded, and due to the positive aspects, they will be good. Sunday is a splendid day for manifestation. Plan well for Monday, as the Moon is void of course for a long period Monday morning and early afternoon.

Monday the Moon is void of course from 1:26 a.m. until 2:15 p.m. PDT. Don’t be surprised if you have a slow start Monday morning. Stick to routine tasks until 2:15 p.m. PDT when the Moon moves into Gemini. Then, make phone calls, connect, and communicate.

Venus-conjunct-Neptune is Tuesday’s major aspect, giving inspiration to romantic notions. We may be idealistic about love and money, The Gemini Moon squares this Venus-Neptune conjunction; our energies may scatter in different directions. Whatever the issue, communication is a pathway to sorting things out. Curiosity abounds throughout the day.

Wednesday is packed with planetary activity, and the Moon is void of course for a long period of time from 10:27 a.m. to 8:31 p.m. PDT. The void Moon period is a time to focus on routine, insignificant tasks. Avoid meetings and activities requiring decisions. Jupiter turns retrograde for a five-month backward spin until August 11th. When planets change direction their energy is amplified. Thus, Wednesday is likely to be a jovial, expansive day.  A Mercury-Pluto sextile will help us get to the bottom of issues of concern.

With the Moon in Cancer, Thursday is framed for home and family. Express acts of deep caring and reserve some energy to focus on home. Cook some nourishing food, and cozy up with family. Be careful about a tendency to exaggerate or overextend due to a Mercury-Jupiter square aspect.

Planetary activity is strong on Friday, making this week’s end work day anything but relaxing. Morning hours sport a Moon-Saturn opposition which may result in challenges and limitations, followed by a powerful Moon-Pluto opposition that may bring power struggles. Friday is a complex day, potentially full of challenges and turbulence. Go slow, and meet each test with patience and wisdom. Be prepared to surrender if needed. A benefic Venus-Saturn sextile can help us attend to money matters and make improvements. Adding punch to the day, the Sun is making an applying square to powerful Pluto. This is a day to meet the gifts and challenges with full attention and high energy.

Although the Moon is in playful Leo, expect a challenging, power-packed Saturday with a few surprises. This is another day to go slowly and carefully, as the planetary energies are fiery and turbulent. The Sun conjoins Eris, a somewhat belligerent energy. Lean into a big project, get moving, and make a difference.

Sunday is truly a Sabbath day. Planetary aspects are joyful and expansive. Create a fun day, kick back, and enjoy. You deserve to make the most of this day after a challenging week.

The Moon ingresses into industrious Virgo on Monday, April 15th, Tax Day. If you still need to finish, the Virgo Moon will help you complete your taxes and get it done. If your taxes are done, turn your attention to other things that need to be completed. When the Moon is in Virgo, as it is Monday and Tuesday, it is time to clean up and get organized. A Moon-Uranus trine may deliver surprises. Even though you would like to be on task for clean-up, be open to diversions that demand your attention.

Thursday: Focus attention on comfort, caring, food, and family. Be mindful of a tendency to exaggerate or overextend.

Friday: Challenging day full of tests and turbulence. Meet challenges with patience and wisdom.

Saturday: Challenging, turbulent day with surprises. Go slowly and carefully, but lean into a big project that matters.

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.

In the Stars March 31-April 7, 2019…shining light on the astrology of the week: New Moon

The Sun now shines in Aries, where it is exalted, or highest functioning. The Aries zodiacal month encourages new beginnings. It is the season for spring cleaning and fresh starts. Solar Aries symbolizes passion, warmth, excitement, zest for adventure. Mercury turned direct on Thursday, March 28, although it remains in its shadow until April 16th. This means that although Mercury is now direct, it still carries some of the effects of Mercury retrograde until April 16th. We can still expect to experience some communication and mechanical breakdowns through April 16th. So be patient with mix-ups which may be opportunities to revise, re-view, or re-configure. The South Node conjuncts Pluto, a major aspect symbolizing completions, transformations, endings, and new beginnings.

* * * * * * *

Sunday is blessed by a benefic Moon-Jupiter sextile in the freedom signs of the Zodiac, Aquarius and Sagittarius. Sunday is a great day to gather with good friends and community.

Expect to encounter illusion, mystery, and surprise on Monday and Tuesday. The Moon is in Pisces, expanding our imagination and vision, and lifting us out of practical reality into ideal worlds. Look for the poetic and the magical in Monday’s and Tuesday’s offerings. The cosmic alignment Uranus-sextile-Moon is perfect for Monday, April Fool’s Day, as it may bring a few practical jokes and surprises. Mercury is nearly conjunct Neptune, exact tomorrow, On Tuesday, dreams states are enhanced in both our sleeping and waking consciousness. On Tuesday a benefic Moon-Saturn sextile helps us ground our imaginative ideas into practical reality.

The Moon is void of course all day on Wednesday from 8:36 a.m. through 7:56 p.m. PDT. Lower your expectations for things to get done, and don’t expect a lot to happen today. You may feel pulled in many directions, and overextended. Stick to insignificant tasks. Allow yourself to dream, work in your garden, or just pull back from the demanding world and read a book.

The South Node conjuncts Pluto, the planet symbolizing transformation, on Thursday. This South Node/Pluto alignment could signal endings and transformations. Keep your heart open, and surrender to change. The Moon is in bold, courageous Aries on Thursday and Friday, but it is dark on Thursday and Friday before coming into an exact conjunction with the Sun, signaling a New Moon at 15 Aries. Draw inward, as the lunar cycle comes to a close. This New Moon is potent—and serious. Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto square this New Moon. Although Aries, sign of the Sun and Moon, is about quick, fiery, courageous action, the square from Saturn, the South Node, and Pluto is a force to reckon with, and may result in delays and challenges to forward, and possibly impatient movement. Things may not happen at the pace we anticipate, and we may have to deal first with some challenges that delay. Friday’s New Moon is the first New Moon of the annual zodiacal cycle. It is ripe with potential for fiery, excited, initiating motion; yet it is in check by Saturn and Pluto. Forward motion now requires thoughtful intention and attention, and meeting the challenges that occur. A blessed Moon-Jupiter trine, though, showers a spirit of optimism and a sense that all is well.

Saturday through Monday afternoon the Moon is in sensual Taurus. On Saturday the Moon conjuncts Uranus, meaning just about anything surprising could happen. Expect a good surprise! Taurus symbolizes all things sensual, and plants and gardening. One way you could activate this energy would be to revision your garden, and shop at a nursery for unusual plants or garden objects.

Sunday’s major aspect, Mercury sextile Saturn,  syncs our thoughts with reality, and we can write and communicate responsibly, and with attention to what needs to be said. The Taurus Moon makes at least four other benefic aspects with planets, making this a day for fortuitous realizations. Taurus is an earth sign, and actions will be sensual and grounded, and due to the positive aspects, they will be good. Sunday is a splendid day for manifestation. Plan well for Monday, as the Moon is void of course for a long period Monday morning and early afternoon.

Monday the Moon is void of course from 1:26 a.m. until 2:15 p.m. PDT. Don’t be surprised if you have a slow start Monday morning. Stick to routine tasks until 2:15 p.m. PDT when the Moon moves into Gemini. Then, make phone calls, connect, and communicate.

In the Stars March 24-31, 2019…shining light on the astrology of the week

Spring has arrived; now the Sun shines in Aries, where it is exalted, or highest functioning. The Aries zodiacal month ahead encourages new beginnings. It is the season for spring cleaning. The shift into solar Aries brings passion, warmth, excitement, zest for adventure and fresh starts. Two major alignments infuse the week: Venus-sextile-Uranus, and Mercury-conjunct-Neptune. Venus in Pisces sextiles Uranus in Taurus. Sextile aspects are opportunities; you have to make conscious use of them to reap their benefits. This Venus-Uranus sextile is a pleasant aspect. You can find new ways of expressing yourself creatively. Also, you may make some surprising, unusual, satisfying purchases. The Mercury-Neptune conjunction is a poetic, mystical, idealistic combination. With this Mercury-Neptune energy you could write a song or a poem. You may want to plan a cruise, or a trip over water. Be prepared to capture your dreams. In contrast to last week’s alignments, there is very little time when the Moon is void of course. Mercury turns direct on Thursday, March 28. Use the last few days of the retrograde period early in the week to review, reconsider, revise, and re-do.

* * * * * * *

Sunday is yet another extremely active planetary day. The afternoon and evening may be tense, and prone to volatile interactions (Moon opposite Mars and Moon square Venus). Get yourself organized for the week ahead prior to 7:24 p.m. PDT, and then relax into the evening.

The Moon is in optimistic Sagittarius on Monday, forming a benefic trine to Chiron and the Sun. This is a day for expanding our lives. Read a book that expands your worldview, explore ideas for future travel, or learn something new and expansive. Pull some Tarot cards, or consult the I Ching, and see what is being mirrored to you by those esoteric messages.

Tuesday is uplifting. The Moon conjuncts Jupiter, giving optimism and enthusiasm. Venus moves into Pisces through April 21. Venus is exalted, or at its best, in Pisces. Venus in Pisces is sweet, inspired, and radiates love and beauty. The only downside is that there are now no major planets in air signs. With the air element missing in action it may be more difficult to think and communicate for a few days until Mars enters air sign Gemini on April 1.

We are ready to concentrate on work on Wednesday and through the rest of the work week on Friday, as the Moon shines in the industrious sign of Capricorn. Venus makes an opportunistic sextile to Uranus, enabling us to reconfigure our investments of time, energy and money, and perhaps to discover a few good surprises.

Mercury stations direct on Thursday, shifting our communication issues and challenges. I’ve been trying to set the date and place for a memorial for my husband during this Mercury retrograde period, and nothing has come together. It is not the time to do this sort of thing, so I am relaxed about it and patient. If date and place are not resolved by Thursday when Mercury turns direct, it certainly will resolve shortly afterwards. The Moon’s benefic aspects to Mercury and Neptune enlarge our vision and options.

Friday could be an eventful day. First and foremost, strong work is demanded, and the planetary gods Pluto and Mars align with the Capricorn Moon to help make it happen. The Moon is conjunct Pluto in the early morning hours. Mars-trine-Moon gives us energy to get a lot accomplished. The evening’s Moon-Uranus square may deliver some surprises. At 6:46 p.m. PDT the Moon shifts into friend-loving Aquarius, so join with friends Friday evening to celebrate the end of a productive work week.

On Saturday the Moon makes an opportunistic sextile to the Sun. The Sun in Aries is exalted and confident. The Moon in Aquarius is free-spirited and inventive. Do something new and adventurous. Mars moves into Gemini tropically until May 16th, where it activates our mental activity. This energy of Mars in Gemini for the next six weeks encourages us to write, communicate, and think critically. If you have a writing project in mind, this would be an excellent time to get it moving.

Sunday is blessed by a benefic Moon-Jupiter sextile in the freedom signs of the Zodiac, Aquarius and Sagittarius. Sunday would be a great day to gather with good friends and community.

Expect to encounter illusion, mystery, and surprise on Monday. The Moon is in Pisces, expanding our imagination and vision, and lifting us out of practical reality into ideal worlds. A Moon-Uranus sextile may bring a few practical jokes and surprises. Mercury is nearly conjunct Neptune, exact tomorrow, enhancing dreams states while both sleeping and awake. Look for the poetic and the magical in Monday’s offerings.

In the Stars March 17-24, 2019…shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon, Spring Equinox, Sun into Aries

This blog is dedicated to my husband, Ralph Metzner, who died on March 14, 2019, of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF). Ralph was a recognized pioneer of psychological, philosophical, and cross-cultural studies of consciousness and its transformations. He was also an accomplished astrologer, once in private astrological practice in addition to his counseling psychology practice. He authored numerous articles on astrology in the 1970s, and wrote about astrology in his book Maps of Consciousness (1971). During his lifetime he published over 20 books, the latest of which are Ecology of Consciousness (2017), Overtones and Undercurrents (2018), and Searching for the Philosophers’ Stone: Encounters with Mystics, Scientists, and Healers (2019). If you are interested in the astrology of his death, you can read about it at the bottom of this blog.

The Sun is still Pisces for a few more days, closing out the winter season, ushering in the Spring Equinox, when the Sun moves into Aries on Wednesday, March 20. For a few more days we drink in the gifts of Pisces: sweetness, beauty, inspiration, spirituality, creativity, and compassion.  The shift into Solar Aries brings passion, warmth, excitement, and zest for adventure and new beginnings. This week is full of time when the Moon is void of course, time when the Moon is making no Ptolemaic (major) aspects to any other planets. The Moon is void nearly all day on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. If you want to make the most of the week, plan routine, inconsequential tasks for those days, and plan meetings, shopping, and activities involving connections and decisions for Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. Mercury continues retrograde through March 29 in its sign of debilitation, Pisces. In Pisces, Mercury is weak, prone to confusing communication. Check written communication twice, as we are more prone to mistakes. If appointments get confused, be generous and understanding, and double check your agreements and appointment dates and times. Mechanical things, including automobiles, appliances, and technology are more prone to breaking down. When Mercury is retrograde it is a good time to clean up old email and finish projects, rather than starting new things. This Mercury-retrograde-in-Pisces period may be especially challenging. Use this retrograde period to review, reconsider, revise, and re-do.

Sunday, St. Patrick’s Day is set for celebration. Put on your green clothing and make merry. Enjoy a St. Patrick’s Day parade, or gather with friends for an Irish holiday feast. Conversation is energized and engaging.

You may want to extend the weekend through Monday, and declare it a personal holiday with the playful Leo Moon as backdrop. The Moon is void of course all day from 8:19 a.m. to 6:41 p.m. PDT, framing the day for routine tasks. Meetings will likely be a waste of time, as it is difficult to make sound decisions when the Moon is void. When the Moon moves into Virgo at 6:41 p.m. PDT, we will want to get organized, and plan the rest of the week. We may want to think about some new ways of doing things in the light of a Moon-Uranus trine since things may not go as expected.

With the Moon in Virgo on Tuesday, it is time to clean house and get organized. A lot of things on your “to do” list can be accomplished. Get busy!

Wednesday is an extremely active day in the cosmos. The Sun moves into Aries, heralding the Spring Equinox, and marking a new year zodiacally. There are six planets at 23 degrees, amplifying this degree. If you have any planets between 20 and 26 degrees, you will be influenced by these planets at 23 degrees: Eris, Mars, Jupiter, Venus, and Vesta. Close by within one degree are the North and South Nodes (24 Capricorn and Cancer) and Pluto. In addition, the Moon is Full at 0 degrees of Aries/Libra. We are primed for new growth. The Sun is conjunct Chiron, setting the stage for healing and holistic thinking. Mars trines Pluto, firing up our courage and resolve to charge ahead. Mercury sextiles Saturn, fostering sound, responsible writing and communication. The Moon makes six aspects with other planets, mostly positive. There is a great deal of practical energy for manifestation. Although the Moon is void of course nearly all day, from 8:22 a.m. through 6:28 p.m., this day is primed for action. It is not a day for decisions or definitive meetings, but rather it is a great day for tackling issues or projects, and getting a lot accomplished.

The Moon is in copasetic, tranquil Libra both Thursday and Friday. Venus makes a benefic sextile to Jupiter on Thursday, expanding possibilities and possibly bringing monetary increase.

Numerous aspects that are positive, challenging, interesting, and surprising abound on Friday. The Sun conjuncts Chiron, symbolizing the wholeness of our lives. Take stock of the different aspects of your life, and how well they work together to compose the life you want. Work hard, consider possibilities, expect the best, and be open to surprise. The Moon is void of course for a long period on Friday from 11:10 a.m. through 7:16 p.m. During this time meetings and decisions are not defined; stick to routine tasks. Meet challenges with grace and resolve.

The Moon shines in the sign of Scorpio on Saturday. We need to withdraw and spend some time alone with ourselves. Relax, and ponder the meaning of things that deeply matter.

Sunday is yet another extremely active planetary day. The afternoon and evening may be tense, and prone to volatile interactions (Moon opposite Mars and Moon square Venus). Volatile energy holds great potential for action, so put it to good use and get some things accomplished. Get yourself organized for the week ahead prior to 7:24 p.m. PDT, and then relax into the evening.

The Moon is in optimistic Sagittarius on Monday, forming a benefic trine to Chiron and the Sun. This is a day for enlarging our lives. Read a book that expands your worldview, explore ideas for future travel, or learn something new and augmenting. Pull some Tarot cards, or consult the I Ching, and see what is being mirrored to you by those esoteric messages.

The Astrology of Ralph Metzner’s Death

Ralph Metzner died about 4:20 a.m. in Sonoma, California on Thursday, just as Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node were at the horizon, symbolizing endings and transformation. Ralph was born May 18, 1936, at 9:08 p.m. in Berlin, Germany, Transiting Jupiter was conjunct his natal Jupiter, releasing him into the Afterlife. Transiting Uranus was conjunct his natal Moon/Uranus conjunction. The North Node was conjunct his natal Pluto in his 8th house that symbolizes death and transformation. The asteroid Vesta was exactly conjunct his natal Saturn, flanked by Neptune and the Sun; this triple conjunction of Neptune, Vesta, and the Sun, shining on his natal Saturn, lifted him out of his body into the light. The asteroid Juno, symbolizing the mate, was exactly conjunct his Descendant, the point of the horoscope that symbolizes the mate. He died peacefully in his sleep with me, his mate, at his side.

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.

In the Stars March 10-17, 2019…shining light on the astrology of the week

With the Sun still Pisces, we continue to attune to its symbolism: beauty, inspiration, spirituality, creativity, and compassion.  Mercury continues retrograde through March 29 in its sign of debilitation, Pisces. In Pisces, Mercury is weak, prone to confusing communication. Check written communication twice, as we are more prone to mistakes. If appointments get confused, be generous and understanding, and double check your agreements and appointment dates, and times. Mechanical things, including automobiles, appliances, and technology are more prone to breaking down. For example, our garage door broke the day Mercury went retrograde. However, it is a good time to clean up old email and finish projects, rather than starting new things. This Mercury-retrograde-in-Pisces period may be especially challenging. Use this retrograde period to review, reconsider, revise, and re-do.

* * * * * * *

Spring forward the clocks at 2:00 a.m. Sunday morning when we bounce into Daylight Savings time in most parts of the country. Sunday and Monday are colored by an exalted Taurus Moon. All things sensual are highlighted – things that please the ears, eyes, taste buds, and touch. A benefic Mars-Neptune sextile, exact on Sunday, encourages philanthropy. Do a charitable act, giving gifts of time, talent, or money.

Monday is an inspiring, energetic, productive day. Make the most of this day’s opportunistic energies.

After a slow, undefined start early Tuesday morning, activities of the day move swiftly after the Moon enters Gemini at 8:48 a.m. This is a day for making phone calls, answering email, and communicating. We can multi-task, and attend to a flurry of work tasks with relative ease.

Curiosity, connection, and communication are Wednesday’s themes with the Moon in Gemini again. The Sun forms a benefic aspect to Pluto, encouraging us to push forward with our projects. A challenging Sun-Jupiter square may show us that we are trying to do too much. Yet, we dream of expansive possibilities.

Thursday is chock full of planetary activity, most notably a benefic Mars-Saturn trine that provides grounding and determination for leaning into our work, and getting a lot accomplished. The Moon is void of course for a long period of time from 5:31 a.m. through 2:49 p.m. PDT when the Moon moves into Cancer tropically. During this void Moon time stick to routine tasks, and don’t waste your time on meetings and things requiring decisions and connections. A Moon-Uranus sextile makes it possible to break out of limiting habits and ineffective ways of doing things. Activate the energy by taking a new route home, or stopping to do something out of the ordinary in the afternoon or evening hours. A Sun-Mercury conjunction brings clear thinking.

We may be overwhelmed with ideas and possibilities on Friday, thanks to a Mercury-Jupiter square. A Moon-Neptune trine gives vision, and fuels the imagination; in contrast, a Moon-Saturn opposition sets limits. This is a day when possibilities, limitation, and mastery combine to help us create something solid and inspiring. The Cancer Moon highlights the importance of the comfort of home and family. Settle into a cozy evening at home.

Saturday begins with determination to get a lot accomplished, and to dig deep. A benefic Mercury-Pluto sextile helps us probe challenges at a deep level. It is a good day for pondering problems—and solving them. The Moon is void of course all afternoon from 11:03 a.m. through 5:57 p.m. PDT. If you have weekend shopping and errands to do, get them done early before the Moon goes void. Reserve the afternoon for routine household tasks, though you could tackle a big household goal. At 5:57 p.m. PDT the Moon moves boldly into Leo, and it is time to party. Put on your dancing shoes, and dance the night away.

Sunday, St. Patrick’s Day is set for celebration. Put on your green clothing and make merry. Enjoy a St. Patrick’s Day parade, or gather with friends for an Irish holiday feast. Conversation is energized and engaging.

You may want to extend the weekend through Monday, and declare it a personal holiday with the playful Leo Moon as backdrop. The Moon is void of course all day from 8:19 a.m. to 6:41 p.m. PDT, framing the day for routine tasks. Meetings will likely be a waste of time, as it is difficult to make sound decisions when the Moon is void. When the Moon moves into Virgo at 6:41 p.m. PDT, we will want to get organized, and plan the rest of the week. We may want to think about some new ways of doing things in the light of a Moon-Uranus trine.

In the Stars March 3-10, 2019…shining light on the astrology of the week

With the Sun in Pisces, we attune to its symbolism: beauty, inspiration, spirituality, creativity, and compassion.  Uplift your life with an elegant dinner at a restaurant on the water, playing music, or attending a poetry reading.  Mercury turns retrograde on March 5th, so tie up loose ends and make travel plans before Tuesday.

* * * * * * *

On Sunday we are goaded by a Mars-Moon square, best used for exercise and movement. Take a hike with a friend. Get moving!

On Monday Jupiter aligns with the Moon in a benefic sextile, blessing us. Our work week will be off to an optimistic start.

Mercury turns retrograde for a three-week backwards spin on Tuesday at the last degree of Pisces, the last of the zodiacal cycle. It is time to rview, re-imagine, and re-vision. The Moon is dark, signaling a time to turn inward to prepare for the next lunar cycle.

Wednesday holds a symphony of planetary energy. The most major shift is Uranus into Taurus for a seven-year stay in the fixed earth sign. Uranus is a game changer, ready to plow the soil for the seeding of new resources, values, and plans. The New Moon in Pisces is conjunct Neptune, oozing with intuition, inspiration, and vision. This New Moon/Neptune conjunction makes benefic sextiles to Mars, Pluto, and Saturn, meaning that vision and inspiration can be turned into action and realization.

Our dream state may linger through Thursday morning, and then after a brief mid-day void Moon (11:08 a.m.-12:27 p.m. PST) the Moon bounces into Aries and begins a new cycle. With the Moon in Aries, it’s time to get started on some things awaiting attention.

Friday is a satisfying end to the work week. The morning is sweet, and we may want to celebrate by buying coffee for our co-workers, or allowing ourselves to indulge in a pastry. This would be a good morning to do a random act of kindness. A Sun-Saturn sextile leads us to accomplish a lot of work with ease.

Saturday morning may deliver a rough ride with the Moon in a challenging square to Saturn and Pluto, though the challenges are mitigated by a Moon-Jupiter trine which gives trust and optimism. The Moon is void of course for a long period of time from 9:14 a.m. through 11:10 p.m. PST. In addition, Mercury is retrograde. This is not a day for shopping, or anything requiring decisions and connection. Focus on routine tasks or cleaning up your winter garden.

Sunday and Monday are colored by an exalted Taurus Moon. All things sensual are highlighted – things that please the ears, eyes, taste buds, and touch. A benefic Mars-Neptune sextile, exact on Sunday, encourages philanthropy. Spring your clocks forward one hour to shift into Daylight Savings Time. Do a charitable act, giving gifts of time, talent, or money.

Monday is an inspiring, energetic, engaged productive day. Make the most of this day of opportunistic energies.

Sunday: Be active and energetic.

Monday: The work week gets off to an optimistic start.

Tuesday: Mercury turns retrograde; it’s time to re-imagine and re-vision.

Wednesday: New Moon conjunct visionary Neptune in Pisces. Dream big! Uranus moves into Taurus for the next seven years. Big changes lurk in values and managing resources.

Thursday: You can dream and drift in the morning, but after 12:27 p.m. PST, get clear and get moving.

Friday: Satisfying, productive end to the work week.

Saturday: Rough ride will include some challenges. Moon void of course from 9:14 a.m. through 11:10 p.m. PST, so focus on routine tasks.

Sunday: Give your gifts of time, talent, or money.

Monday: Inspiring, engaged, productive day.

In the Stars February 24-March 3, 2019…shining light on the astrology of the week

The Sun shines in Pisces, the zodiac sign symbolizing vision, beauty, inspiration, spirituality, creativity, and compassion. This week’s blog is dedicated to my new grandson, Gracian Cole Jacobson, born with the Sun in Pisces, Moon in Libra tropically on February 21 at 1:23 p.m in Newton, Massachusetts.

With the Sun in Pisces our hearts are full of compassion for those less fortunate. Give a gift of gratitude for your life to someone, or some group, who is experiencing difficulty. Uplift your life by visiting an art gallery, writing a poem, or enjoying a music concert. Mercury turns retrograde on March 5th, so it is time to make travel plans and tie up loose ends.

* * * * * * *

Our feelings run deep while the Moon is in Scorpio through mid-day Monday. Sunday holds benefic aspects from Neptune, Saturn, and Pluto to the Moon. Scorpio symbolizes transformation, so this would be a good day to clean up a part of your home and get rid of excess, lifting the vibration of the space to a higher level.

Monday will be off to a slow and undefined start with the Moon void of course in Scorpio all morning until 1:19 p.m. PST. Then the Moon moves into fiery, optimistic Sagittarius, and we are off to the races, ready to make the most of the week ahead.

Tuesday and Wednesday are energetic, optimistic days, fueled by the fire of the Sagittarius Moon.  The Moon-Neptune square on Tuesday may fill us with a desire to set sail for far away shores. This is a good day to dream of possibilities and expansive travel, or travel to other worlds by reading an inspiring book.

A benefic Sun-Mars sextile on Wednesday gives us strength and confidence. The Moon makes a benefic trine to free-thinking Uranus. These aspects enable us to move toward our goals and experiment with some new ideas.

Thursday and Friday are framed for hard work and resolve. Take the lead on Thursday, and put your best foot forward. Take courage from the Mars-Moon trine in earth signs Taurus and Capricorn.

Friday is an edgy day; a Venus-Uranus square at the anaretic, or last degree, of cardinal signs Aries and Capricorn may result in some unexpected twists and turns. Put you mind to the business at hand, and dig in. Make the most of these end-or-the-work-week days that are framed for hard work and accomplishment. Handle obstacles with patience and resolve.

While Saturday morning still calls for responsibility and hard work, the load lightens, and we detach emotionally on Saturday afternoon through Monday. With the Moon in Aquarius, these days highlight friendships, groups, and social causes, about which we feel passionate. Connect with friends. Make a donation to a favorite cause, or make a move to volunteer for some community service you’ve been thinking about. Venus is now in Aquarius, making us more detached about matters of love and money.

On Sunday we are goaded by a Mars-Moon square, best used for exercise and movement. Take a hike with a friend. get moving!

On Monday Jupiter aligns with the Moon in a benefic sextile, blessing us. Our work week will be off to an optimistic start.

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.

In the Stars February 17-24, 2019…shining light on the astrology of the week: Full Moon

The Sun moves into Pisces tropically on Monday, February 18, ushering in a zodiacal month focused on vision, inspiration, spirituality, creativity, compassion–and water. This is a month to go whale watching along the California coast, or skiing in the mountains. This is also a good month to visit art exhibits, or to paint a picture, make a creative card for someone, or write a poem. Express your inspiration.

This week holds a Full Moon which is a SuperMoon, a Full Moon that is close to the earth. The Full Moon occurs just after the Moon moves into Pisces, at 0:42 degrees of Pisces/Virgo. This Full Moon contains the tension of ideals we want to accomplish and the practicality of what can actually be accomplished. Aim high, work hard, and the results of this Full Moon energy will be tremendous accomplishment.

* * * * * * * *

The Moon bounces into fixed fire Leo early Sunday morning, ushering in a day of fun. However, the fun could be spoiled by conflict generated by the Moon’s edgy square to Mars and Uranus. If things get tense, find a creative, playful way to change the energy.

Monday, February 18 is a day of shifts. The Sun moves from Aquarius to Pisces at 3:04 p.m. PST. Pallas Athena stations retrograde at the critical degree of 29:29 Libra, giving a focus on the arts. With Uranus opposing Pallas Athena this is particularly creative aspect in effect all week. Chiron re-enters Aries at 1:07 a.m. for an eight-year stay. Venus is conjunct Saturn, calling us to our responsibilities regarding love and money. Monday’s alignments can help mediate conflict. The Moon makes a benefic trine to Jupiter at 4:00 p.m. PST. Whatever is at play, this aspect makes everything look like it will all work out well.

The Moon is Full on Tuesday, exact just after it shifts into Virgo. This Full Moon is a SuperMoon (close to the earth) at 0:42 degrees of Pisces (Sun) and Virgo (Moon). This Full Moon is energized by benefic aspects to the Mars-Uranus conjunction. Expect some nice surprises. Pisces symbolizes the ideal; Virgo symbolizes the practical, get-it-done work ethic. We may face the dilemma of time management regarding what we want to accomplish, and the limit of the 24 hours available in a day. Even though our efforts may fall short of our aspirations, a tremendous amount of work can be accomplished in the light of this Full Moon both Tuesday and Wednesday. Venus is flanked by Saturn on one side and Pluto on the other side, making a conjunction of these three planets in Capricorn. This configuration in the industrious sign of Capricorn also lends itself to hard work and substantial accomplishment within inherent time limitations. Aim high, and work efficiently and effectively. Your sustained efforts will deliver impressive results. The Moon is void of course at 5:51 p.m. after it makes a trine to Pluto, a crowning moment for Wednesday’s accomplishments.

Thursday and Friday the Moon is in social, copasetic Libra. Thursday morning the Libra Moon opposes Chiron, focusing us on what needs to be healed in our lives. There are no exact major aspects the rest of the day; Jupiter’s Day (Jueves) is a blessed day to go optimistically, and savor our relationships.

Friday, however, is a different story, as it is infused with planetary activity, much of it edgy and challenging. Two major aspects color the day: Mercury-square-Jupiter and Venus-conjunct-Pluto. The Mercury/Jupiter aspect may lead us to talk too much, exaggerate, or promise more than we can deliver. On the other hand, ideas flow and conversations can be expansive and generative. The Venus/Pluto aspect may deepen the love we feel and express if we are open and trusting. Friday abounds with aspects between cardinal signs Libra and Capricorn. Cardinal signs are action-oriented signs, so a lot can be accomplished. Meet your challenges with the grace and dignity of the Libra Moon, and with the blessings of a benefic sextile from Jupiter.

Saturday and Sunday we dive deep into our feelings with the arrival of the Moon in Scorpio.  Saturday morning may get off to a surprising start, thanks to a Moon-Uranus opposition. A Mercury-Pluto sextile helps us get to the heart of matters, and the aspect is also good for research. When the Moon is in Scorpio, we want to withdraw from the world and take some time for solitude.

We are uplifted on Sunday with benefic aspects from Neptune, Saturn, and Pluto to the Moon. Scorpio symbolizes transformation, so this would be a good day to clean up a part of your home and get rid of excess, lifting the vibration of the space to a higher level.

Monday will be off to a slow and undefined start with the Moon void of course in Scorpio all morning until 1:19 p.m. PST. Then the Moon moves into fiery, optimistic Sagittarius, and we are off to the races, ready to make the most of the week ahead.

Sunday: Make this a fun day, and if tension mounts, find a playful way to divert it.

Monday: Sun moves into Pisces. Chiron moves into Aries for an 8-year stay.  Be responsible and considerate with love and money. All will work out well.

Tuesday: Full Moon at 0 degrees Pisces/Virgo. Your aims will exceed what you can accomplish, but nonetheless, you can be super productive.

Wednesday: Impressive results can be realized from strong, focused work.

Thursday: Open to healing, and ease into a beautiful day.

Friday: Active, edgy day. Meet challenges with grace and dignity.

Saturday: After a surprising start to the day, take some solitude, and honor your feelings.

Sunday: You can transform a portion of your life; release excess.

Monday: Moon VoC until 1:19 p.m. PST. Then the Moon moves into Sagittarius and you are off to the races.

In the Stars February 10-17, 2019…shining light on the astrology of the week

This week’s highlight is a Mars-Uranus conjunction, exact on February 12th. The Mars-Uranus aspect can be reckless, so go slowly and cautiously, but it can also be exciting, inventive, and invigorating. Put the energies to work on a constructive, innovative project that requires a lot of energy. You can activate this energy consciously in various small ways. For example, try a new exercise. Take a new route or method of transportation to work. Explore something new in your community. Start a home improvement project, or learn more about astrology! If you know where this conjunction falls in your horoscope (what house holds the sign of Aries), then activate the symbolism of that house. For example, the Mars-Uranus conjunction falls in my first house of personal appearance, and yesterday I had my hair cut just a little shorter. As I write this, i realize that I could activate this energy by wearing new expressions of my wardrobe.

On another, lighter note, the Sun still shines in Aquarius until February 18th. Aquarius is the sign that symbolizes groups, organizations, and community. While the Sun shines here, consider stepping up to do something more for your community. Volunteer or get more engaged. My brother Rob, who has a demanding job as a FedEx executive told me this past week that he was going to volunteer to coach a baseball team this spring. That’s the altruistic, community spirit! Get involved, and let’s collectively make our world a little better.

* * * * * * * *

Sunday is a highly charged, active day. The Aries Moon first makes an edgy square aspect to Pluto, and then conjuncts Mars and Uranus. These energies could lead us into spontaneous decisions that may produce unexpected results. Exercise caution in your actions. After a two-hour void Moon period (3:48-5:28 p.m. PST), the Moon moves into easy earth sign Taurus. Cook and enjoy a nourishing dinner, and get grounded and ready for the week ahead.

All things sensual are highlighted on Monday and Tuesday with the Moon in Taurus. Make your home a little more visually pleasing. Water and nourish your plants, and grace your space with beautiful flowers. We are inspired on Monday by the Moon’s benefic aspects to Venus and Neptune. Continue to exercise caution, as Mars is nearing an exact conjunction to Uranus, perfecting on Tuesday, which can make us erratic and impulsive, but also determined and creative.

Late on Tuesday Mars exactly conjuncts Uranus at the anaretic degree of 29 Aries. The anaretic, or last degree, of any sign is a sensitive degree point. There is often too much or too little of the energy and symbolism. Mars-Uranus can be reckless and explosive. For example, there was a gas line explosion in the middle of San Francisco a few days ago. Move carefully, and with extra consciousness. At the same time, this energy can help us push through stuck patterns. Make space for big change. This day, Tuesday, is my son’s birthday, and he and his wife are expecting their first baby any day, so the event is sure to bring big change into their lives.

On Wednesday the Moon is in Gemini, generating chatter and curiosity. Wednesday belongs to Mercury, the messenger god. Open up, communicate, and connect.

Thursday, Valentine’s Day, Mars enters fixed earth Taurus tropically where it will reside for the next six weeks. Mars ushers in a six-week period when we can finish what is already in motion before we embark on any new projects. Patient, plodding, diligent work will bring results.

The Moon is in its comfortable ruling sign of Cancer on Friday, making benefic aspects to Uranus, Mars, and Mercury. Be compassionate and caring, and spend sweet time with family.

In contrast to Friday, Saturday contains some challenging energy. The sensitive Cancer Moon opposes Saturn in the morning, and Pluto in the evening. These aspects push us to deal with insecurities and responsibilities. They are demanding and unforgiving. Be on your toes, meet your responsibilities, and do your best.

The Moon bounces into fun, fixed fire Leo early Sunday morning, ushering in a day of fun. However, te fun could be spoiled by conflict generated by the Moon’s edgy square to Mars and Uranus. If things get tense, find a creative, playful way to change the energy.

Monday, February 18 is a day of shifts. The Sun moves from Aquarius to Pisces at 3:04 p.m. PST. Pallas Athena stations retrograde at the critical degree of 29:29 Libra. Chiron re-enters Aries at 1:07 a.m. for an eight-year stay. Venus is conjunct Saturn, calling us to our responsibilities regarding love and money. The Moon makes a benefic trine to Jupiter at 4:00 p.m. PST. Whatever is at play, this aspect makes everything look like it will all work out well.

In the Stars February 3-10, 2019…shining light on the astrology of the week: New Moon in Aquarius

How did the dynamic energy of the Mars-Pluto square this past week empower you, or move you out of a rut? Mars is now marching forward toward Uranus in late Aries where it will make an exact conjunction on February 12th. The Mars-Uranus aspect can be reckless, so go slowly and cautiously. Also the Mars-Uranus conjunction is creative and inventive. Put the energies to work on a constructive, innovative project that requires a lot of energy. The week begins with a New Moon in Aquarius tropically on Monday which ushers in the Chinese New Year of the Earth Pig that officially is Tuesday, February 5th. The New Moon in Aquarius invites us to re-set our friendships, our group endeavors, and to be bold and inventive.

* * * * * * * *

Thankfully, the pressure from Saturday is eased on Sunday when the Moon moves into friendly Aquarius. It is a day for gathering with friends, the perfect backdrop for Superbowl Sunday gatherings. The game is likely to be quite a fight with the Mars-Pluto square still active. A benefic Mercury-Jupiter sextile broadens our thoughts, and makes for upbeat conversations. Venus moves into Capricorn for the next few weeks, amplifying our commitment to hard work and saving money.

Monday, February 4 sports a New Moon in Aquarius at 15:45 degrees. The Sabian symbol associated with this degree is “A big businessman at his desk.” This degree symbolizes the need for organization, and to make sure that you have the space and the tools to successfully do your work. Your desk needs to be in order, and you work space must enable you to have a strong command of your work. If you’ve been pondering how to create a more empowering work environment, this New Moon would be the time to set that in motion. This New Moon Sabian symbol also invites us to think about how happy we are in our career, and how we feel about our career-life balance. Monday’s New Moon encourages us to think about how we can improve our work spaces and our overall work life.

Tuesday, February 5 is the Chinese New Year of the Earth Pig or Boar. The Chinese New Year signals a time in the Chinese Culture for cleaning house, gathering with family and friends, and giving gifts of money in red envelopes. The Chinese New Year is a celebration of life, and an opportunity to raise vibrations to a higher level. The Earth Pig Year is one for personal advancement. This year you should use your free time to make yourself better any way that you can. The year of the Pig is highly conducive to learning new skills. The Pig Year calls us to be kind in our interaction with others. With Mars (in Aries) sextile to the Moon we want to get up and get going with a good workout. Expect something different in your routine (Moon sextile Uranus). The Moon moves into Pisces tropically at 6:02 p.m. PST. Settle in and watch a movie, and then drift into dreamland.

Wednesday could be an easy day. The Moon shines in sweet, compassionate Pisces and makes no exact aspects. Allow your imagination to soar. Take a hot bath, and plan to get to bed early and get a great night’s sleep.

In contrast to Wednesday, Thursday is loaded with aspects and resulting activity. Jueves, Jupiter’s Day (Thursday) is a lucky day (Moon sextile Jupiter). Mercury sextiles Mars, energizing thoughts and conversations. The Moon is void of course from 2:13 p.m. PST all through the evening; suspend expectations for making connections and things requiring decisions after the Moon becomes void.

Friday the Moon bounces into cardinal fire Aries at 6:34 a.m. PST. Lean in and get a lot accomplished. An unsettling Moon-Venus square aspect may make us socially uneasy and discontent on Friday evening. Be conscious about what you say.

Saturday is an active, fiery day full of challenges and blessings. Mars squares the Moon’s nodes in Cancer and Capricorn, bringing out the challenge of balancing work and family life. Mercury sextiles Uranus, symbolizing freedom of thought, and brilliant ideas. We are reminded of our responsibilities and limitations (Moon square Saturn). A brilliant Mercury-Uranus sextile can help us generate new ideas and solutions, and the day ends with a benefic aspect between the Moon and Jupiter, making us feel that anything is possible.

Sunday is a highly charged, active day. The Aries Moon first makes an edgy square aspect to Pluto and then conjuncts Mars and Uranus. These energies could led us into spontaneous decisions that may produce unexpected results. Exercise caution in your actions. After a two-hour void Moon period (3:48-5:28 p.m. PST), the Moon moves into easy earth sign Taurus. Cook and enjoy a nourishing dinner, and get grounded and ready for the week ahead.

Moon Void-of-Course: This is the time when the Moon makes its last major angular aspect with a planet before it moves into the next zodiacal sign tropically. This void time, when the Moon is not aspecting a planet, but rather floating on its own, is a time when things don’t come together and it’s difficult to make good decisions. Purchases made during void Moons often turn out to be unsatisfactory and not work out. Appointments often don’t come together, and meetings don’t result in progress or sound, lasting decisions. We more easily get lost or meander in trying to get somewhere. The VoC Moon times for the next month are listed below so that you can plan meetings, decisions, and purchases at times when the Moon is not VoC; and use the void times for gardening, reading, and routine task work.
